. but there are a ton of these problems in mr. ryan's record. and there's never been a brighter spotlight on it than there was last night. like there was this exchange on the military. >> you don't cut defense by $1 trillion. that's what we're talking about. this invites weakness. look, do we believe in peace through strength? you bet we do. >> devastating cuts on our military. when paul ryan condemns defense cuts as a nefarious democratic idea that he is fighting valiantly against he did not mention he voted in favor of those exact same defense cuts. also on the issue of medicare, i mean, maybe it's been said enough now that it doesn't need to be said every time, but once again at the debate paul ryan pounded his chest and criticized democrats for a change in medicare funding that he's denouncing on the campaign trail. last night as a $716 billion cut to medicare. well, that's a cut to medicare that he put in his own paul ryan budget. you can be for that thing or against that thing but cannot simultaneously be for that thing and against that thing not if we're supposed to take you seriously on poli
he wants to do and i think that's a big advantage. >> what does mr. ryan do if biden keeps trying the human aspect of these numbers of his? >> i have rarely seen him express the kind of humanity, quantatative easing. he's got a great touch on the trail. it will be interesting tonight because it's no doubt that he's going to play that playing card. >> neither one of you are catholic. a smart columnist, this may end up being a philosophical debate tonight. if you're catholic and pro life, it raises the issues of values. i'm pro choice and i'm not happy about it but it's up to the individual woman to make that decision. it's never an easy issue but you should be listening to your church when it comes to social responsibility and you're cutting every poor person's program. that fight will be fascinating. any chance that that will happen? >> we all know that the bishops, the catholic bishops wrote a letter that did not meet the royal standards. >> i read that. >> that's because of what he did for folks on food and nutrition programs. in addition to that, you have the medicare plan and
in less than an hour. mr. ryan has never debated in a world wide forum. while mr. biden has. so it is crunch time for the congressman. mitt romney and the republicans are counting on ryan to continue the momentum and to at least parry anything vice president biden says. can he do it? that is the drama of the debate in kentucky this evening. since the campaign began, the obama team has not dealt with the media very much. even though the media loves the president. the last white house news conference, seven months ago! can you believe it? mr. obama does some soft news, like the late night shows and the view. but rarely sits for policy interviews. i've interviewed the president twice. but indications are he will dodge "the factor" this year. we hope he doesn't. he wants to reach independent voters, this is the place. obviously any interview he does with us will get world wide attention. vice president biden is even worse in the serious media. he's done few national tv interview views and rarely does he talk to local tv people. he's never been on "the factor," although i will talked
's job. and feel free to drive that wedge between the truth and what mr. ryan has to say. >> jennifer: i think there are a lot of wedges or air that can be exposed between, for example, paul ryan and mitt romney. paul ryan's budget, huge opportunity, and of course the lies that paul ryan himself has uttered like in his convention speech. biden is not going to sit back and take that i assume. >> no, i don't think so. and i think people will be watching for daylight between paul ryan and mitt romney. paul ryan not wanting to drag his own career down with this guy who has been kind of on the losingen of the stick. we saw that happen with mccain and palin, right. somebody wanting to make their own career at the expense of someone else's. but joe biden is a thoughtful man, an experienced leader and he is committed to his partner in this, president obama. here is the other thing, joe biden is a heck of a story teller. his gaffes come with a lot of affection, because they are usually in the telling of a really important human story. >> jennifer: i agree with you. but do yo
continue the tax cut for the super wealthy. >> mr. ryan. >> ryan: you know what the unemployment rate in scranton is today? >> biden: i sure do. >> ryan: it was 8.5% when you came in. >> biden: look, that's not how it is going. it is going down -- >> two-minute answer please. >> ryan: did they come in and inherit a tough situation? absolutely. [ laughter ] >> ryan: but we're going in the wrong direction. look at where we are. the economy is barely limping along. it is growing at 1.3%, that's slower than it grew last year job growth in september was slower than it was in august and august was slower than it was in july. we're heading in the wrong direction. 23 million americans are struggling for work today. 15% of americans are living in poverty today. this is not what a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for real recovery. and that's exactly what mitt romney and i are proposing. get america energy independent. help people who are hurting get the skills they need to get the jobs they want. get the deficit under control. make trade work for america, and c

it of the 43-year-old candidate, mr. ryan, who acted in a calm, cool, reasonable reserved way. not the old politician with 36 years in the senate. watching it, really reminded me of -- >> -- you have an example, peter, of what you say are the scare tactics used in this -- >> -- let's look at it. [ laughter ] [scary. [ laughter ] >> that was -- that was unintentional. but that. >> that's frightening. >> play it again. i think it's important. let's play that again. let see what that is that is dr. evil on one side. now joe biden is not dr. evil. is he an honorable american investor isn't a and patriot. when you look at this kind of unhinged unbridled, unfettered that michael laughing and looking up at the sky and throwing your eyes back and throwing your head back and looking and interrupting 80 different times, you say, you know, has he he become a movie character? are the gaffes intentional? or are the gaffes not intentional? can he control himself or can he not control himself? can he he control himself when he takes about benghazi and blows out the state department and comes up with a ne

's performance in kentucky fairly low, perhaps an advantage for him, 40% say they expect congressman ryan will do a better job in the debate. 34% for mr. biden. as for the moderator, abc news insists there will be no conflict of interest. they revealed that barack obama attended her wedding in 1999 when a student at harvard law school. the man she married was later the head of the fcc by president obama in 2009. that is 12 years after raddatz divorced him. this is absurd, martha raddatz is known for her tough, fair reporting which is why it was no surprise to her colleagues inside and outside abc news she was chosen for this assignment. congressman ryan arrived in danville early last night. vice president biden spent last night in delaware. he'll arrive in kentucky later today. speaking of debates, last night was round three in that closely contested u.s. senate race up in massachusetts. republican senator scott brown, democratic challenger elizabeth warren facing off in springfield, mass, as two new polls are split on which candidates as the advantage there. unlike the first two debates, last ni

's the trolley. it's on the way to the neighborhood of make-believe. that's where me and paul ryan get most of our facts from. >> so, where was mr. feely, you know, the neighborhood speedy delivery man? voters want to know. we flubbed a phone number or two, right? that simple mistake turned out to be a whopper for florida governor rick scott. during a meeting yesterday on a meningitis outbreak on the state, scott directed anyone with concerns to a toll-free hot line. the problem? here's what callers heard when they dialed the number scott had given. >> hello, boys. thank you for calling me on my anniversary. existing callers, press one. new callers, press two. >> wow, doesn't that sound -- doesn't sound much like the department of health. callers concerned about meningitis were directed in this case to call an adult phone line. the governor later notified of the mistake and it was quickly rectified but not before a few people fell victim, or whatever. >>> illinois congressman joe walsh unveils a gotcha photograph. here's walsh at a debate with duckworth last night. we don't get a great look
